Olly Murs’ new single, Troublemaker FT Flo Rida, looks set to keep Girls Aloud off Number 1 on Sunday.
The X Factor star turned Xtra Factor host’s latest track is currently outselling Girls Aloud’s comeback single, Something New (Number 2), by nearly 28,000 copies according to today’s Official Singles Chart Update.
Olly currently has three chart topping singles to his name (2010’s Please Don’t Get Me Go, and 2011’s Heart Skips A Beat FT Rizzle Kicks and Dance With Me Tonight), and if Troublemaker holds onto his lead, he will equal Girls Aloud’s Number 1s tally of four.
One Direction’s Little Things is down two places to Number 3, while Alicia Keys’ Girl On Fire looks set to debut at Number 4. This week’s Official Singles Chart Update Top 5 is completed by Labrinth’s Beneath Your Beautiful FT Emeli Sande (Number 5).
As well as Olly Murs (Number 1), Girls Aloud (2) and Alicia Keys (4), there arefour other new entries on this week’s Official Singles Chart Update.
East London collective Rudimental are on course for their second Top 40 hit of 2012. New track Not Giving In FT John Newman and Alex Clare is at Number 11 today, while Ludacris looks set to score his 18th Top 40 single with Rest Of My Life FT Usher and David Guetta.
Following AC/DC making their entire back catalogue available on iTunes for the first time earlier this week, 1980’s Back In Black and 1979’s Highway To Hell are on course to make their Official Singles Chart debut at Number 31 and 40, respectively.
